WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The Bruins were back at work this morning practicing at Ristuccia Arena. After taking eight of a possible 10 points on their recent five-game road trip, the Bruins will host the Minnesota Wild on Thursday at TD Garden before heading back on the road for a crucial match with the Canadiens -- who they lead by three points in the Northeast Division -- and then onto Pittsburgh to face Sidney Crosby and the Penguins on Monday.
At practice, the Bruins paid some extra attention to the power play, with rookie Tyler Seguin working the point, Steven Kampfer and Zdeno Chara switching off as the other defensemen, and Milan Lucic, Marc Savard and Nathan Horton the forwards. The Bruins also worked on breakouts from their zone.
Here's what the even-strength lines and defensive pairings looked like:
Milan Lucic -- Marc Savard -- Nathan Horton
Zdeno Chara -- Johnny Boychuk
Dennis Seidenberg -- Steven Kampfer
